Chicago Cubs: Ranking the top 10 home runs of the decade
Chicago Cubs: There have been plenty of memorable home runs hit this decade by the North Siders. Which ones were the very best?
“This ball has got a chaaaaaaaance, gone!” The distinct call of Pat Hughes on the radio when the Chicago Cubs hit a home run is held near and dear to fans every season. Hughes has made that call plenty of times this past decade, including some of the biggest round trippers in franchise history.
From 2010 to 2019, between regular season and postseason, the Cubs hit a total of 1,824 home runs. Twice this past decade the team eclipsed 200 homers in a season (2017 and 2019) and 45 of that total came in the postseason. Long story short, that is a lot of long balls. Even the most die-hard of Cubs fans will likely not remember each one of those home runs…but if you do, that is very impressive.
However for this article we are going to go back and look at 10 home runs in particular of this past decade. So, looking at less than one percent of the total hit over the past decade. Here is a list of the 10 greatest homers the Cubs hit from the dark days of 2010 through 2019 which saw a World Series championship and several postseason runs in between.
Of course, these are based on opinion and are always up for debate. So please leave your list of top 10 Cubs homers this past decade in the comments.
